Lab 8, Fossils on the Internet, is a web-quest lab. Do page 185-192 in your lab manual, using the links below, complete the lab in your manual, then scan and submit.
The links below should take you to the sites you need to answer the questions in your lab manual. The UCMP Berkeley links were down but are now working. I updated the link for the FAQ questions because it had changed. Please go back and check any answers that you may have found elsewhere, using the corrected link, http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/faq.php.

In 750- 1000 words, describe a particular
geographic feature that is in danger of
disappearing: a particular glacier that is melting, a
particular island that is sinking, a river that is
drying up. Explain the history of the feature, the
threats to the feature and the probable future of
the feature.
Use APA style and make sure to document all
your references – reputable websites are fine but
no text books or online encyclopedias. Do not
include any direct quotes – always rephrase and
then reference! And be sure that you are using in-
text references so I can tell where you got the
information from — don’t just list them at the end.

2. Where it is located (city, state, national park? other location info? Give as much location information as possible.)
3. Geologic formation name
4. Age (geologic time period name) of rock (or tell if it is modern). See geologic time chart on p. 313 in the back of the lab manual, if you are not familiar with the geologic time chart from lecture.
5. A short description of how the sedimentary structure formed (wind? waves? drying? burrowing organism? etc.).
6. Sedimentary environment in which it probably formed (beach? river? deep sea? desert?)

Your essay should be accompanied by a citation list in MLA or APA format with at least three citations. One of these citations may be the textbook. Two must be external. References may include books and refereed journal articles, certain valid news outlets (specifically, Newsweek, Time, Fortune, National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, New York Times), government sources (state, local, and federal, generally have a .gov in their website address), or universities and museums (generally have.edu in their website addresses) (e.g., wikipedia is not acceptable). Please include references within the text of your essay that relate to your citation list (i.e., let me know where you have used material in your text from your citation sources). If you reference a web site, you must include the exact web address. Using a citation maker such as Citation Machine or Google docs tools/citation is helpful to make proper citations. You may use no more than two direct quotes in your text of no more than two sentences each.
Your grade will be based on approximately 60% for content, 20% for grammar and spelling, and 20% for citations and references.

You may submit as many times as your like until the deadline. You are responsible for submitting to Blackboard by the deadline to receive credit for your work. Late submissions will not be accepted
